A HYGIENE-conscious cafe has received the maximum rating from the Food Standards Agency.
Blue Sky Soft Play Cafe, above Blue Sky Day Nursery, on Becklands Park, received a five-star rating during a recent inspection - the highest score available.
It was the first time the cafe had been inspected since the introduction of ‘Scores on the Doors’, a national food hygiene rating scheme.
Carol Gibson-Cass, manager of Blue Sky Day Nursery, which was also given a five rating by the Food Standards Agency before Christmas last year, said: “We were hoping to get above a three and we’re really happy to get a five.
“It makes you think you’re doing everything right.”
She added that credit must go to kitchen staff Michelle Massey, the cafe’s cook, and Sue Hayton, the nursery cook, for both businesses receiving a five rating.
The cafe has a variety of play equipment for children as well as being a cafe.
